This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow, as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this trans-creation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute as used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord. http://www.sikhri.org/guru_granth_sahib_885 Guest: Inni Kaur (@innikaur) Host: Manpreet Singh (@mjassal) --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-sikh-cast-sikhri/support
